Protecting Our Communities: A Community Guide to Resisting the Trump Budget
Webinar with the Center for Community Change and National Priorities Project
Wednesday, April 19th 11am - 12:30pm PT / 2pm - 3:30pm ET
Dear Friends and Allies who Stand and Move Boldly in the Black Prophetic Traditions,
Join us on April 19th to learn about how the proposed Trump budget will impact our local communities and how we can fight back—together. We’ll discuss:
- Experiences of sustained divestment in communities and the need for government to value families trying to make ends meet rather than target and control our communities
- Where federal money goes and where it comes from, who makes the decisions and how.
- How Trump’s proposals for militarization, from policing to the Pentagon, immigration enforcement, and cuts to jobs, education, housing, health would be felt by Black and other communities of color around the country.
- Tools and resources (i.e., sample op-eds, press releases, and fact sheets) that can assist your community in engaging with local elected officials, media.
Using National Priorities Project’s online tools we will show in real time how Trump’s proposals would affect your state or city, and what a values driven, responsible budget alternative would look like.
We must resist as we push for investments needed for our communities to thrive.
